I love the boldness of these photos. It’s far from the sweet, dreamy photos that I very much love but all the same, just as pretty, just as amazing. I find it cute that this kids could project so much with the help of Mandy’s great skills and bits of props. This certainly made me smile and erased the sleepiness I feel.

I want to thank everyone who left me kind comments on the previous post. Things are a bit awkward and I tend to stay away from places where I would be easier seen because the fear won’t go away though I already him an A-class ticket. You are very sweet. You are all lovely. I am very overwhelmed and too happy to be even alive because of you. I love you. x

Such photos of freedom and femininity, meadows and wild flowers and lakes!

Just yesterday, Mom and I talked about a wild bunny she saw and then the topic veered off to nature. It’s one of my top five complains in the country – less trees. I love trees and that’s not because they’re the easiest to draw but because they are an important factor in nature, they add beauty and they benefit us humans so much. I won’t expect forests near the city here. Just more trees on the islands on roads. That would be beautiful, don’t you think? Oh how I envy America!

On another note, this is my second post containing edited photos which I largely disown. Katrina gave me the idea of including the name/username of the owner on the photo; Liss made me reconsider how I posts pictures on my blog which are not mine. I took measures such as saving the file with the owner’s name and crediting more. On the link (click Liss), she also gave tips on how to find the owner of the photo you found.

On another website (which I forgot where), I also found an article about a writer who used the artist’s work and did not ask for a permission. Naturally, the artist requested for his artwork to be removed and the writer did so but with much bitterness! The writer complained that the artist must be thankful as his work was used and seen by many so why request for it to be removed? Blah blah blah.

Is that right? Is the writer’s logic correct? I think not.

{found via}

I tried to edit the photos I share here on my blog. I added a frame (do you like it?) and the source’s name with the copyright symbol + a link on his/her website. That way, these photos will never be taken as mine and dear Holly won’t have any reason to sue me. And yes, she is dear. When I found her on Pugly Pixel, I immediately jumped to the idea of making a post about her as well.

Holly has such a beautiful and creative talent. She has an eye for good color combinations that I like. I’m a fan of pastels and bright, pretty colors combined. She uses the beauty of the sky and the effects the sun creates so well. I like the use of inanimate objects. I like little, pretty things than people photography wise. She is like the perfect photographer for my tastes.

This Is Glamorous

Posted in art/fashion/photography, blogs, interests. by Lex on July 19, 2010

How do I narrow down how glamorous this blog is?

3 reasons why it’s worth your attention and a click on the RSS feed button:

  • First, a blog must be neat and pretty and attractive, able to attract readers like me who take this factor into much consideration.

  • Second, it’s a chest full of jewels and pearls and shining gold (see above). The sort of antique chest buried in the depths of the ocean found by pirates (random: Johnny Depp *squeals then dies*). When the author says “… place of inspiration…”, it really does inspire you to find beautiful things, to read and write and to do what makes you happy.
  • Third, it’s “been featured on many blogs, websites, newspapers and magazines including martha stewart, the washington post, design*sponge, decor8, apartment therapy, glamour and many other wonderful design and fashion websites, and was featured in the may 2010 issue of lucky magazine” meaning it’s greatness has been recognized by big names already.

I wish you can tell how glad I am to find this!

Lissy Elle

Posted in art/fashion/photography, interests. by Lex on July 4, 2010

I know you feel scared. I am scared too you know. Just imagine that dress hanging on your wall with the hands. I question, where did the blood go? No matter how terrible the artist is for thinking of such an idea, this is still called art and it’s a kind I have never seen before. Lissy Elle has so much talent. She put much of her effort in creating art with broken limbs, hands and arms and illusions like a lady sinking in her bed as if drowning or a lady hanging in midair.

She can be called scary but you cannot deny how interesting and creative her works are.

Art&Ghosts

PAINTINGS BY: ART&GHOSTS

I beg you to check their website. There is too much beauty and goodness to miss if you don’t. To those who know, I am much attracted to anything bizarre and whimsical, to fairytales and fiction. I cannot fully describe how much I am in awe with the paintings and how much I would die to purchase one. The effect the dark black hair creates on the painting is what I love the most. Next to that is how beautifully drawn the girls faces are – from the pink cheeks to the red lips. I can imagine these paintings framed and hanged side by side on my wall.

On another note, you have noticed that I have veered slightly to arts from books. It’s because I haven’t bought a new book yet though I have been rereading my old ones. My time is mostly taken up by hands as I have recently bought a new notebook which is ridiculously cheap but amazingly beautiful that I cannot complain and went straight to the cashier. So, I’m busy filling it up. Writing thoughts, printing photos, tearing and cutting and pasting, and so much thinking and planning at the same time.

I might share it soon along with my secret habit which won’t be much of a secret then. Until then, au revoir!

Bec Winnel

I found Bec Winnel through the rich blog of Lissa. Reading through the post, it was then that I knew that she was her sister. It wasn’t a surprise that such artistic skill could run in the family. What’s attractive in Bec’s illustrations is the beautiful women with such luscious lips and dark eyes. The third illustration must be my ultimate favorite. It’s amazing how tears could bring such beauty to art and to the woman herself.

Deerlings & Ghostthings

PHOTOS BY: DEERLINGS & GHOSTTHINGS

I don’t know what is in Lola’s photographs that I am so attracted to them. Maybe it’s because of the whimsical themes like the melted popsicle and the hearts on the knees. Or the pastel colors used like the lavender ribbon on the lavender wall. Or it could be the dreamy effects which is a favorite of mine. Or perhaps, Lola’s name.

Either which, I love it.

oh, hello friend.

Posted in art/fashion/photography, blogs, interests. by Lex on June 24, 2010

Danni has been keeping me busy and away from my homeworks (thank God for modular pace schools). Finding her via Daydream Lily Blog was like heaven sent. Everything you find in Oh, Hello Friend is beautiful, pretty, and cute. There’s not one bit of fault in this blog, more so on this woman. In her about page, she narrowed down the person behind the creative blog. She is everything I want to be and she has everything I want to have – a very humble personality, a beautiful career, an amazing skill, and a lovely family.

Haven’t you noticed that when you learn that a certain blogger you adore is a Christian, you feel some fluttering feeling in your heart? It’s one factor that is so charming to me for I am also a Christian.
